Ekidna with great results.
For MBL Apothecary, creating CBD ingestibles and skin care products is a labour of love as well as a business. Providing products with quality and integrity is essential to retaining and expanding their boutique clientele.
Mailing samples away to a lab, however, was a significant expense that meant MBL Apothecary couldn’t test their samples as often as they would like. As a result, they didn’t have the perfect control over their processes that they wanted.
Testing with Ekidna changed that. The MBL Apothecary team loved being able to test in-house much more frequently, and will enjoy significant direct cost savings as a result. Ekidna will empower the team to make more downstream products based on more reliable numbers and will provide better process control at every step of the way.

Responding to initial success and projected demand, a CBD beverage manufacturer spent two years and $7M on a new manufacturing plant.
Part of the problem was that there were delays caused by turnaround time for lab results, compounded by the fact that there were four stages in their process where they needed to do testing. Additionally, investigations often found that there was not one root cause of each problem, but several contributing factors.
While no new manufacturing process is able to operate at full capacity on day one, this manufacturer was facing challenges troubleshooting its process.
The rapid testing provided by Ekidna will shorten troubleshooting time and reduce the production cycle time for each batch from three days to two. This will enable much greater gross profits per cycle.
